Hello fabulous you!!! Happy Friday. Hope you’re well and feeling great!!!
I’m so happy to share my article that appeared in last months The Inspired Guide Mini Mag, get yourself a cuppa, get comfi and enjoy.
I always knew that there was something more that I could be and could have. I always had that feeling that I wasn’t living my life in my fullness. I didn’t know what it was or how to get it but I knew that I wanted it.
I didn’t know it then but – I wanted an extraordinary life.
I’ve learned a lot since, the most important being that, I had to change in order to have an extraordinary life. I first needed to let go of the blame game I was stuck in for years, because no one is responsible for me. What happened when I was a child, what someone did or said, my mother my anything. My life and how I want it, is totally up to me.
It all started to change when I picked up that magic wand called ‘responsibility’ and I became totally responsible for everything about me.
It’s taken a while for me to recognize the gifts that assuming responsibility for myself have blessed me with. It’s empowered me to live my amazing life in ways I never knew possible. Living inside the blame game gave me the permission to happily veg out on the couch with a bag of chips watching TV, while blaming everyone else for my lack, pain, and inertia. Responsibility has empowered me to claim who I am and have dreams.
Being responsible for my own life, started my journey of healing emotionally, physically and spiritually. I’ve gained trust in myself, I’ve learned to value myself, to know that I’m worthy and deserving of all that I want and desire. To love myself unconditionally and live my life unapologetically me.
What I’m saying is, being responsible for yourself will change everything. I can’t tell you how to do it, I wish I could, there is no one formula that fits all. I can only share with you what works for me. But what I can tell you for sure is that, it’s your choice. You can either go for the rest of your life blaming everyone for your poor you situations, or you can choose to live your life in an extraordinary way, and once you pick up that magic wand and become responsible, your life will be magical.
Here are 4 things that transformed my life:
- Wake up to your life. No one owes you anything. Staying in the blame game will only pull you down further into oblivion while your life is passing you by. You didn’t come here to play small, to be less than or to blame your life away.
- Forgive yourself and forgive others. Don’t get me wrong when I say forgive, I know that this may not be easy, it wasn’t for me, it can be pretty darn uncomfortable. It also doesn’t mean you have to become anyone’s best friend if you don’t want to, but it will remove that heavy energy from your body and open you up to more inner peace, joy and free you to flourish.
- Get to know yourself, read self-help books, spiritual books, spend time alone with just you, journal, ask yourself questions. Who are you? What do you want? The unraveling of yourself will open you to the wonders that are you.
- Love yourself, the one most important love affair you can have, is the one that you have with yourself. It will lead you to your heart and open the way forward, it’s transformative.
Extraordinary asks that you remove, let go of, discard, change everything about you that doesn’t spell extraordinary. It asks you to remove your false self and open to your authentic higher self to live the vision you create for yourself.
Your self image, confidence, trust, success, transformation, it all hinges on if you’re living your life while rooted in your own power.
And here’s the secret, there’s nothing more freeing, empowering, loving and sacred than honoring yourself, shining your light and living your extraordinary life.
